Hey with Zion Primary School

Governors

 

Roles & Responsibilities

The three core functions of a school governing body are:
1/ setting the vision,
2/ holding the headteacher to account for the school’s educational performance and
3/ ensuring money is well spent

“Governing boards are the strategic decision makers and vision setters in every school and academy. They play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education for every child by creating robust accountability for school leaders. Crucially, that means using and being familiar with objective data on the performance of pupils, teachers and finances to ask the right questions and ensure resources are allocated to school priorities. It also means ensuring that schools prepare pupils for life and the workplace by building their character and resilience and by implementing their Prevent duty to protect them from the risks of extremism and radicalisation. As we move towards an increasingly school-led system, the importance of boards’ role will only continue to grow.” –
John Nash  Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools
